Visiting Albuquerque, New Mexico: My Top Things To Do
Join me in Albuquerque, New Mexico, a city that sits on Route 66. This area is known for the Sandia Mountains, Native American culture, and a thriving art scene. On this visit, I was also introduced to Flamenco, and as it turns out, Albuquerque is the epicenter for this style of dance. The spirit of Albuquerque can also be found at places like Hotel Chaco, a luxury property inspired by the state's Chaco Canyon. You will feel the inspiration of Chaco Canyon as soon as you walk through the hotel's front doors. A short walk from the hotel will take you into Old Town Albuquerque, where it's impossible to walk ten steps without seeing something crafted by a local artist or inspired by area tribes.
My passion for travel was unlocked when I spent some years living across Europe and South America. I've never been one to shy away from a new adventure, be it swimming with pigs in the Bahamas, bird watching in the Galapagos or Heli-Hiking in British Columbia. And while I used to mostly travel solo, I now like to hit the road with my 4-year-old son, 1-year-old-daughter and husband in tow. The best part of travel to me now is getting to see the world through their eyes. Whether they are petting goats during an Oregon farm stay or making their very own pizza in Idaho, their enthusiasm and joy never fails to remind me of why I love travel.
